Islander 36's Gather At Encinal Yacht Club

July 10, 2016 by John A

Smokey Stover of the Islander 36 'Evanescence' attended the Summer Sailstice celebration at the Encinal YC with family, Lauire, Sarah and Evan and expressed the sentiment many Bay Area sailors feel when they find the calm, sunny sailing of the estuary: 'Love that estuary!'

Smokey posted a short story and photos of the weekend:

It was a perfect weather day to celebrate Summer Sailstice 2016 at Encinal YC.

The water was fun for the kids at the pool where there was also a big BBQ and several live music groups that played continuously throughout the afternoon. Three bars set up in the club, at the tent village and at the pool.

Sail in to swim at Encinal YC.

Also was a 'pool plunge' demonstration of foul weather gear and life saving devices that took place around (and in) the pool. Alma was there to board and admire its history. Alameda Fire docked their new fire boat with twin 300 HP outboards.
